re: Most efficient Windows Install

Any of you know the best way to get Windows 10? I don't feel like spending $100+ on it. Unfortunately all of my new pc parts are only compatible with Windows 10

re: Most efficient Windows Install

Far as I’m aware, the only way to get it is to pay for it..

Microsoft still offers a free upgrade if you meet certain requirements

Not if you didn't upgrade before. Unless that's the certain requirements you're talking about.

You could get a job with a university and get it for like 10 bucks. Happy Or if you are a student at a university you could get it for free.

The university I work for has Microsoft programs and stuff for 10 dollars for staff and stuff.

Where do you go to get it? I technically am a student at a college still, but all I saw for student discounts were on random 3d party sites

I remember Windows student-edition products for sale at campus bookstores.

Which OS is working on your computer? Windows 7,Windows 8 or other?
I don't know why you want to buy Windows 10.The Windows 10 is free.You can just download from the MS website the creation tool onto a USB stick (A Windows 10 installation disk),the Windows 10 can be downloaded by it.

re: Most efficient Windows Install

Here's an excerpt from an interesting article from Tom's Hardware on Windows activation keys.

The article goes through four options for Windows users: download Windows from Microsoft, but never activate; buy through a school (teachers and students); buy a key from a vendor that purchases surplus keys from wholesalers; and buy a key from Microsoft.

The item of interest is #3...

Buy a Cheap Windows 10 Key From a Third-Party Seller: Around $30 (£24, $44 AU)

If you can’t stand living with the scarlet letter of an eternal watermark or want the comfort of knowing Microsoft won’t disown your PC’s OS should you call for help, you’ll have to buy a Windows 10 key. And while some turn to Microsoft for this purchase, there are third-party websites selling keys for much cheaper than Microsoft. For example, at the time of writing, Kinguin sells Windows 10 Home for $20.77, PCDestination has it for $44.99, Amazon charges $99.95, Newegg's' pushing it for $99.95 and even Walmart has it for $125.30.

Now, let's address the elephant in the room. While we can't vouch for all of them, websites selling lower-priced Windows keys are likely selling legitimate codes. One popular site, Kinguin, has 37 merchants worldwide selling Windows keys. Mark Jordan, Kinguin’s VP of communications, told me that their merchants acquire the codes from wholesalers who have surplus copies of Windows they don't need.

"It's not a gray market. It would be like buying Adidas or Puma or Nike from a discounter, from TJ Maxx," Jordan said. "There are no legal issues with buying it from us. It's just another marketplace." ...
